The More You Know

How are gallstones formed?

The gall bladder is a small organ which is situated below your liver on the right upper part of your abdomen. It stores the bile that is produced from your liver which helps in the digestion of food, but it’s an organ that you can live without.

It is prone to develop stones (gall stones) due to the high concentration of bile in the gallbladder which then crystallises into deposits and will subsequently form stones.

Abdomen Pain Caused By Gallstones?

Symptoms May Worsen If Left Untreated

Gallstones can result in pain in the upper right or center of your stomach. You may experience gallbladder pain occasionally after eating certain foods, such as those high in fat. However, pain from gallstones can also occur at any point of time. 

Without treatments such as gallstone removal, it can turn into more severe medical issues, including inflammation or infection of the gallbladder, bile duct or pancreas.

Stones lodged in the common bile duct can cause symptoms that are similar to those produced by stones that lodge in the gallbladder, but they may also cause:




Dark urine, lighter stools or both


Rapid heartbeat and sudden blood pressure drop


Fever, chills, and vomiting, with severe pain in the upper right abdomen

You may then need to undergo procedures such as minimally invasive gallbladder removal (cholecystectomy) or other medical treatments. When in doubt, consult your Gallbladder Surgeon right away!

How We Work

Treatment Options for Gallstones

We understand that every patient is different and that there isn’t a one-size-fits-all treatment option. We therefore have a customised and personalised approach to treating acid reflux, and some of these treatments include:


We may prescribe medications to dissolve gallstones. Medications you take by mouth may help to dissolve gallstones but it may take months or years of treatment to dissolve your gallstones in this way, and gallstones will likely form again if treatment is stopped.

This is why sometimes medications don’t work and isn’t recommended. Medications for gallstones are not commonly used and are reserved for people who can’t undergo surgery.


You don’t need your gallbladder to live, and gallbladder removal doesn’t affect your ability to digest food. Your doctor may recommend surgery to remove your gallbladder, since gallstones frequently recur.

Once your gallbladder is removed, bile flows directly from your liver into your small intestine, rather than being stored in your gallbladder.

Techniques for Gallbladder Surgery Include:

  1. Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy – ‘keyhole’ surgery
  2. Open Surgery

Our Doctor

Meet Our Medical Specialist

Dr Kan is a senior gallstones surgeon who graduated in the UK and with many years of training, he has developed an expertise in minimally invasive/keyhole surgery (MIS) for the management of gall stones. He spent part of his training in the UK where he developed the skills to manage simple gall stone to the complex infected emergency cases.

He is also highly experienced and proficient with years of experience in surgery for the liver and pancreas. The management of complicated gall stones have changed over the years and Dr Kan has been at the forefront of this with the adoption of keyhole surgery. This has meant a shift away from the very large incision in open surgery to very small tiny wounds, which means that a patient’s recovery is faster with less discomfort, less complication, and a significantly smaller scar.
